Ged Williams Nursing and Midwifery Scholarships
These scholarships are delivered as a result of a significant donation from Professor Ged Williams who was Executive Director of Nursing and Midwifery Gold Coast Hospital Health Service (GCHHS) and Clinical Professor of Nursing, Griffith University from 2007 to 2013. During his time with Gold Coast Health and Griffith University, Professor Williams was a passionate advocate for clinical excellence, continuing education and advanced specialisation across all domains of practice.
Building on his legacy, a number of Post Registration study scholarships are available to Registered Nurses, Registered Midwives, Enrolled Nurses and Assistants in Nursing from Gold Coast Health who have completed or expected to complete study in this calendar year. Gold Coast Health encourages the uptake of postgraduate study to develop a highly skilled workforce who are ready and able to help ease distress caused by illness and disability. Ged Williams has generously provided the funding for these scholarships to act as an incentive to pursue and complete specialised postgraduate studies.
- Applications for the 2020 Ged Williams Nursing and Midwifery Scholarships will open later this year.
- Gold Coast Health Registered Nurses, Registered Midwives, Enrolled Nurses and Assistants in Nursing completing their studies as at December 2020 will be eligible to apply.
